Taken from the same five sessions that resulted in the earlier CD The King of the Blues, these 14 numbers include six never previously released and a variety of mostly alternate renditions. The erratic but significant trumpeter Bunk Johnson leads what would be the future nucleus of the George Lewis band (with Lewis on clarinet, trombonist Jim Robinson, banjoist Lawrence Marrero and bassist Alcide Pavageau), plus drummer Baby Dodds, through a variety of trad favorites. Highlights include "Walking Through the Streets," "Darktown Strutters Ball," "Panama" and "The Saints."
